“His energy emanates from his fingers and swirls out of the piano with such perfection that every note grabs the ear with an expressive, singing quality.”
—Washington Post

Famed for his commanding, powerful technique coupled with exceptional lyricism, the great Yefim “Fima” Bronfman makes his second Washington Performing Arts appearance of the season in this solo Terrace Theater recital—a rare opportunity for a D.C. audience to experience his towering presence with such immediacy. As the Philadelphia Inquirer described the all-enveloping sound of this Grammy Award-winner and Avery Fisher Prize honoree: “It’s safe to say there is no pianist around remotely like Yefim Bronfman. Labor doesn’t seem to ever enter the equation; he is simply everywhere, instantly and all the time.”
